Subject: pre agrarian reform in chile and a lot of fantasia too
definetively a gone past.
i ask my mother about the peon - patron relationship and it was not as fantastic as is shown in here.(she was a rural teacher right nearby el fundo santa rosa chile's central region of curico.)
Lot of abuses and a strog catholic church which sat foot in every single aspects of our lives. "don't think don't say and don't learn just do!"
After the agrarian reform of the 60's and 70's (that ended up sppliting us in half as a country) there's no absentee landlords anymore. fundos are all now DOLE subsidiaries and agriculture it's one of the most important export sectors.
Also the laboreers have been replaced by temporeros (wetbacks) that means there's no more responsability on housing and contracts to be held. just hire for the week and dispose of.
